1963 Epiphone Newport ESB

 
1961 Epiphone Coronet SB-533
 
 

First available in 1960, the Newport bass shares the same symmetrical body
with the Coronet, Wilshire and Crestwood guitars.
These cool Epiphone basses were produced in very low numbers until 1963,
when they were updated with a newer design more commonly seen.

With its classic slim curved body and faded Cherry finish,
this Newport is a great example of this very rare instrument;
it is also fitted with the rarely seen muting system.
Great playability and an amazingly deep and rich bass sound.
